Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?

Take a look at Usama and then take a look at Whitey. Whitey Bulger gets three pictures, a movie and a Playboy Centerfold style biography of his hobbies, likes and dislikes. Usama only gets the bare minimum of coverage. The thing that’s most glaring about the difference here is that the FBI actually seems pretty clear about the nature of the crimes that Bulger committed. There’s no mention of the jet plane attacks on the World Trade Center in New York on Usama’s page. There is some vague reference to “OTHER TERRORIST ATTACKS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD” but nothing specifically linking him to any attacks actually on US soil. So how is it that he’s constantly waved around at us as some sort of boogey man on the news if the FBI doesn’t really seem to want to capture him. Could it be that they know he’s already dead? Usama does have a bounty that’s 27 times that of Whitey’s paltry million dollar offer. Perhaps it's easy to offer a fortune that never has to be paid.

Osama is/was a CIA asset and a close Bush-family friend. If they are arrested him, how could they convince other suckers to do their dirty work for them?

This Blog tries to focus on politics as they affect Massachusetts but sometimes I comment on world issues. Around here you can't swing a dead cat around certain newsrooms without hitting someone reporting on Whitey Bulger, The Boston Herald and Channel 4 News at 5 in particular. So I thought it very interesting when Bulgers wanted poster looked like an A&E Biography slash love letter and Osama's is so plain. As for "Tim Osman", they could catch him, try him, execute him and there would still be plenty of 'Eichmans' begging for a chance to do Bush's dirty work.
